About Us Healthcare Services Clinical Research Child Health A-Z Special Programs
 
The Regional Comprehensive Hemophilia Diagnostic and Treatment Center
We are located in the heart of Manhattan at the Weill Cornell Medical Center at the prestigious NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital, and provide comprehensive care for over 300 children and adults with hemophilia, von Willebrand disease and other associated coagulation disorders. The majority of our patients reside within the five boroughs of New York City, but a number of our patients come from as far as Long Island, Westchester and New Jersey.

Our mission is to provide patients with a team approach to treating their hemophilia or bleeding disorder by utilizing the combined skills of healthcare professionals such as:

doctors
nurses
physical therapists
social workers
genetic counselors
dental hygienists
vocational counselors
special coagulation laboratory personnel

From our state-of-the-art facility at a teaching hospital, we can give quality care that helps children and adults with hemophilia live full and active lives.

The Regional Comprehensive Hemophilia Diagnostic & Treatment Center is a component of the Human and Health Services (HHS) Region II, a network of hemophilia treatment centers (HTC's) of excellence in New York, New Jersey, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands. We are internationally known as a training center for doctors from abroad as well as for our local fellows and residents. Our presence is known globally for initiating and collaborating with other HTC's in active research related to many of the complications of hemophilia, which has made us a forerunner in comprehensive care. The funding we receive from The Maternal Child Health Bureau and The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention helps us to make specialized clinical care more accessible and affordable to our patients.
